As a Flight Software Engineer, you will assist in the development, execution, and implementation of the flight software that commands and monitors the spacecraft.
- Implement software for automated testing at component, functional and system levels, including HITL (Hardware in the Loop) testing
- Implement low level software to interface with various spacecraft components
- Design, develop and validate spacecraft flight software, ground software, and simulation software
- Perform Flight Software verification, validation, and integration
- Assist in recruiting, interviewing, and hiring additional teammates to our rapidly-growing team
- Bachelor of Science degree in CS, EE (or equivalent background knowledge)
- Experience with embedded systems programming (C/C++)
- Experience with Linux and shell command-line tools
- Familiarity with commonly used protocols and standards for spacecraft communications, such as CCSDS, CAN, SpaceWire
- Experience in implementing real-time systems and software solutions on spacecraft missions
- Demonstrated ability to personally design, build, and test hardware and/or software from scratch
- Capable of identifying and solving complex problems with little to no supervision or direction
- Must be able to work extended hours and weekends as needed
Preferred skills and experience
- Experience with reading schematics and datasheets, debugging circuits that interface with embedded software, from debugger to logic analyzer to oscilloscope

About Turion Space
Turion Space was formed with the vision of building the technology required for humanity's interplanetary future. Our short-term goal is to solve the most significant threat to that vision - orbital debris. The exponential growth of spacecraft and launch vehicles entering Earth's orbits has dramatically increased the risk of collisions. Even a small number of these conjunctions will lead to the inaccessibility of the final frontier. We are developing the technology to stabilize this threat. This challenge will also serve as a test-bed for future asteroid resource extraction.
